The conference looked at what is arguably the most contested idea of the twenty first century: Nationalism, examining the construction of the concept of nationalism, the idea of what is an anti-national, the role of oral history, art and iconography in nationalism. Through discussion and debate, participants looked at ways in which these topics might be brought into the classroom—thereby opening up the school into a space for addressing relevant issues such as these. Speakers included, among others, Euroclio ambassador Catharina Veldhuis-Meester, Parismita Singh, Zainab Akhter, Janaki Nair, Deepa Srinivas, Malik Sajad, Yousuf Saeed, Jerry Pinto and Abeer Gupta.
